Burning Issue on + disc HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4164B by LG

Have this problem burning + disc Once in a while I'll get a bright thin circle where it looks like it didn't burn or something. Disc will not play, have tried various blanks, Sony, TDK, HP etc. My firmware version is 1.05. Is their a newer firmware version for this model?

    Being new to this I'm not sure what you mean by rinning, maybe you meant running. Anyway, I'm using good disc, but I did notice that my provider is sonic solutions, file version Is there an upgrade to this and where would I find it? Also, Nero info tool says my ASPI is corrupt. I then used the Nero version but it still does the same thing. I think I need a new burner and that this is not a software problem. CD's burn okay.

Are you rinning a sonic burner? I get the same problem once in a while. smudges fingerprints etc will give you a burn error. I use imation disks. doesn't really matter what media you use. some of them are thicker than others and loadup hard.

Wont burn dc or dvd

Have you tried installing the original software did it have one if NOT. Then go to google type LG DRIVE 16 HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-4166B Software. See what google comes up with you will be surprised. The reason why its not burning as you say is because you are using a foreign software. I hate saying this but sometimes hardware can be sentimental like your wife/husband. Goodluck your prolem lies with software not hardware.
